FA to invite city bids

Published Add your comment

The Football Association will hold a ´beauty pageant´ for cities who want to be considered as host venues for the 2018 World Cup bid.

The FA is looking at around 10 stadia to be earmarked for the finals and want individual cities to put forward bids to be included.

They are also keen for a wide a geographical spread as possible and new stadiums planned by Portsmouth and Bristol City - cities overlooked in the 1966 World Cup and Euro 96 - are early contenders.
